t(ä/a)uschen

Frankfurt's red light district is right beside the financial district - an unintentionally apt metaphor for big capital and its bedfellows as well as the prostitution of labor.

Playing on the subtle inflection difference between tauschen (exchange) and täuschen (deception), T(Ä/A)USCHEN comments on the deceptive veneer of commodification by pairing and paralleling the streetscapes of Frankfurt's financial district with its nearby red-light district.
